Next Gate Inn Walk Sunday 15th March 2020

Gate Inn Calendar 2020, Uncategorised Posted on Sun, February 09, 2020 11:46:06

As the storm rages and the rain pelts the windows in our house I thought it may be nice to cast our minds to the start of Spring!

We are proposing the have our next walk on Sunday the 15th March 2020.

After the long wet spell the Moss Valley is starting to dry out under foot. I walked in the valley yesterday and it was reasonable on the main tracks in most places. There are still parts which are very muddy indeed. I will keep checking on conditions.

A favourite spot for a welcome pint

Our walk will probably be via Fold Farm, Mill Dams, Bramley, Eckington Woods, Bolehill, Middle Handley & Buttersick Farm to the Travellers at Apperknowle. Returning to the Gate via ‘Red Lane’ skirting the airfield.

More information to follow as conditions hopefully improve.

Cheers ~ Bob Simpson.



Festive Walk Sunday 29th December 2019

The route should be reasonably good under foot most of the walk as it is on bridleways & footpaths.

A warm welcome awaits all at the Gate Inn after the walk.

Merry Christmas to all customers & friends old & new. All the best for 2020
Andrew & Kay.

If you can make it see you on the Gate Inn car park at 10.00am for an autumn walk in the Moss Valley.

I walked upto the Gate on Monday and is was reasonably good under foot, but a couple of more days rain could make it a bit muddy.
